Our Emerson microwave died and I bought a new one. Plugged it into the same socket and it immediately shorted out and died. After the new microwave died I plugged a blender into the same receptacle and it...


I believe you have a bad circuit breaker or fuse. If you have a delay fuse contrilling this circuit, that would explain the spotty availability of power to the outlet. Also, a faulty circuit breaker can operate in an irregular way, as you describe.
A microwave oven requires a lot of power, relatively speaking. If your microwave is a 1200 watt model, for example it draws 12 amps of power, which could well be almost all of the power available at that outlet, providing that other appliances were not also drawing power from that circuit at the same time.
I can assist you further, but if this information is all you need to proceed that is fine too. Get back if you need more assistance.

NO POWER


Inside the microwave is a fuse. If you can, try plugging the microwave into a different outlet (use an extension cord). If it does not power on, you have likely blow the fuse. If you are technical, you may look into replacing the fuse yourself (you will have to remove some parts of the microwave exterior to get to the fuse). Otherwise, if no longer in warranty, you will need to have a shop or handyman replace fuse.
